Ingredients

Handful fresh parsley

Few sprigs fresh oregano

Few sprigs fresh rosemary

Few sprigs fresh thyme

8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs

2 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts

4 ribs celery, coarsely chopped

2 carrots, peeled and quartered

2 onions, peeled and quartered with root attached

4 cloves garlic, crushed

1 lemon, sliced

1 1/2 teaspoons black peppercorns (half a palm full)

Few fresh bay leaves

Kosher salt

Directions

  1. Tie the parsley, oregano, rosemary and thyme with kitchen twine to create an herb bundle.
